Jonas Wright wants his wife back in his arms and in his bed where she belongs. Grief and weight gain have skewed her body image until she cannot see the sexy woman he desires with his every breath. Nearly out of time and out of options, he risks losing her forever in a desperate, public attempt to show her how gorgeous she still is. If it takes the groans of strangers to make her realize the truth, so be it, as long as she offers her soft body to only him.
“Why do you look like you’ve been crying?”
She shook her head though he’d know she lied. “The wind. I forgot my sunglasses at the campground.”
Taking his own off, he settled them over her ears. “Can’t have that.”
Her heart swelled with love. Always considerate, he never hesitated to think of her before himself. “I can’t take these. You won’t be able to see.”
“It’s fine.” He opened his windshield bag and pulled out the goggles he wore in the rain or on high pollen days. It took him seconds to switch the clears for tinted lenses.
“You hate those.”
“Yeah, but I have a thing against my princess looking like a frog.” He slipped the strap over his head and adjusted it. The mirrored finish gave him a distinctive bug-eyed appearance.
She couldn’t help but laugh when he wiggled his eyebrows and croaked at her.
He tugged her off balance and against his chest. “Give this frog a kiss. Maybe I’ll turn into a prince.”
“Not possible.” Reaching up she ran her thumb over his lips. He could not become something he already was by nature, but telling him so would embarrass him. Although he never hesitated to kiss her or tell her he loved her, any sentiment she voiced aloud sent him stumbling to change the subject. “There’s no way I’m kissing a toad in public. What would people think?”
“They’d think I was a damned lucky amphibian.”
